    Frank and Gerda coming to our office was always the highlight of the week. It was a pleasure to take care of Frank. He was always more concerned with how we were doing than what it took to care for him. I never had a grandfather growing up, but I stated numerous times if I had one I’d want him to be just like Frank. If we could live our life like Frank the world would be a much better place. We love you Frankie!
